of War 3 has already become the most pre-ordered Xbox 360 exclusive of all time and is out in just two weeks. But if you really just can’t wait to get your hands on the game and need your Gears of War fix, then these rather impressive statistics from the Beta might just tide you over:
In total 1.29 million people took part in the Beta’s four-week run, with a total of 143 countries taking part in the vicious sport of chainsawing people in half. In that short time those people managed to accumulate a total of 249 years worth of gameplay.
· More than 11 million matches completed
· More than 927 million kills recorded
· More than 131 million executions performed
· More than 23 million deaths by chainsaw
· Nearly 23 BILLION bullets fired
· 460 million ribbons and 294 million medals earned
· 435 thousand people earned the beta exclusive Thrashball Cole skin to use in the retail game when it launches in September
· 234 thousand people earned the beta exclusive Gold Retro Lancer to use in the retail game when it launches in September
How quickly do you think these stats will topple when the full game becomes available in just two short weeks? Time to get the chainsaws revving.
